Customer-Centric Strategic Plan
In April 2015, we completed our first Customer-Centric Strategic Plan. This plan was developed through the valued cooperation of community residents, area administrators, fire officers, firefighters and staff members. This plan will provide a framework to expand the continued delivery of excellent fire, emergency medical, rescue and fire prevention services to our community. On behalf of the Lemont Fire Protection District Board of Trustees, I would like to thank those individuals who dedicated their time and energy to assist in creating our plan. This document is a dynamic tool that will be updated as projects are completed and performance benchmarks are achieved. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our Vision for Excellence.
Move Right for Sirens & Lights
When the Fire Department is called to an emergency it is important that we respond quickly and safely.
If you are driving down the road and see the lights and sirens of an emergency vehicle in your rearview mirror, move to the right and stop to allow emergency vehicles to move easily down the road. Once the emergency vehicles have passed merge back into traffic when it is safe to begin driving.
Every time fire engines or aid cars are called to an emergency Fire Fighters are giving their all to help others. Do your part as a driver to help Fire Fighters do their job as quickly and safely as possible.
Spring Fire Safety Tips
As spring approaches thoughts turn to cleaning up from the long winter, making repairs around the home and enjoying the outdoors. Keeping a few safety thoughts in mind will help you make your spring experience much more enjoyable.
Inside the Home:
- Check and clean your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- Check your fire extinguishers
- Check for overloaded or damaged extension cords
- Prepare for storm related outages (make sure your flashlights and portable radios have batteries and that other supplies, such as bottled water, are stocked and available)
- Practice exit drills with your family so everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency
- Properly store household chemicals and never mix cleaning agents
Outside and Around the Yard:
- Make sure your address numbers are up and visible from the street
- Clean up yard debris. Cut back dead limbs and grasses
- Maintain a clear 'fire zone' of 10' around structures. Clean up leaves and debris and consider using stone or non-combustible mulches
- Check outdoor electrical outlets and other electrical appliances
- Get your grill cleaned and serviced. Check all propane tanks and lines for leaks and damage
- Keep 100' of garden hose with an attached nozzle connected and ready for use
In the Garage or Shed:
- Clean up and properly store paints, pool and yard chemicals
- Check fuels containers for leaks and make sure they are properly stored
- Have all power equipment cleaned, serviced and readied for use
